Help with Ettus B210

Py2Rn
 

Hi, trying to resolve this issue here on Windows 7, the log below from SDR-Radio trying to initialize B210 board:

10:48:36.691: Radio Ettus: Auto-detect> Initialising

I tried with UHD_003.010.000 and 003.010.002 but no difference, I got the same issue.
If someone had passed through this before and figured it out I would appreciate if you let me know how to proceed.

Thanks

Re: RTLSDR detects no HF input signal

you have to have an up-converter as sdr console does not support the Q-input, so no hf available with the dongle.

But I can't make it to work with SDR Console. It starts and I see and hear a signal noise floor of about -105 dbm. But the HF Signal is not comming through.
In the other programs I had to select  "Q-Input" to make  direct sampling mode to work. But I can't find any similar setting in SDR Console, to have  the HF Signal beeing directed to the input of my SDRRTL.

Could somebody tell me what I do wrong?

Dear All

I have an Realtek RTL 2838UHIDIR dongle and it works perfect with HDSDR, SDR Sharp and cubicSDR.
But I can't make it to work with SDR Console V3.0.3. I see and hear a noise signal at about -105 dbm, but there is no HF Signal comming trough. 
On the other programs I had to set "Q-Input" to initiate direct sampling. But I can't find a place to do a similar setting in the SDR Console.
Can somebody advise me what I do wrong and how I can make it to work?

Many thanks.  Bernard, HB9ALH

Re: SDR Console as a RFI hunting tool

Fred
 

Hi Bill
No expert here but...
I have my smoothing on Triangular at the default settings.
You will find that under View.

Also try the Auto button upper right of the spectrum display..hit this button a few times
Also slide the color bar up to smooth things out.

I also use RYB for the color of the waterfall it's easy on my eyes.
You can also make your own colors to display in the waterfall.

Make sure you play with the DSP screen very use full it's like 4K TV.

Two more tips
#1 read the help screens on the SDR Console...I've read them 10x and still haven't absorbed it all.
#2 put "only" your radio and PC on (battery power would be best) then turn off your house.
Then look for RFI.

My house was full of little birdies battery tender for my motorcycles was the worst.
LED TV was bad too especially 160m..
I live in a small neighborhood after Christmas RFI here is really bad...I can't wait for all the toys around here to die.

Anyway probably not too much help...

Re: how to add afedri sdr net radio to Radio Definitions

Open SDRConsole, the 'Select Radio' window opens, hit 'Definitions...' in the lower center of window. 
A new window called 'Radio Definitions' opens and click on Search in the upper left.
Afedri-SDR (Lan) is the first selection, followed by Afedri-SDR (USB).

Make sure you have the latest version of SDRC, for I am not certain when that radio was added to the list.

Upon install it needs to Load VisuCalc C+++ 2017. Try google-ing .On another sdr forum software same one make remarks about this trouble.

So far none of the alternatives work for me - anyone else?


SDR Console as a RFI hunting tool

bill K7WXW
 

I am using an RSP2 with SDR Console to track down and identify RFI sources, mostly in the HF band. I am still trying to figure out how to set up SDR console (and by extension my SDR) to do this most effectively.  I am wondering if anyone here is using the software in this way and would be willing to share their expertise?

Here's one question to start... I don't really understand how the smoothing function works or how to set up smoothing to attain a particular outcome. For example, I want to average out as much noise as possible so that the waterfall will show "real" signals coming and going over time.  How do the various selections in smoothing effect what I see on the spectrum and waterfall display? 

thx and 73 bill K7WXW

Were you using the N8VB virtual com ports embedded in HRD?

If so, the folks at HRD sent out an email explaining that they ceased support of N8VB virtual com ports and there have not been any updates in years and other alternatives are available.

LaValle Laabs <lavallelaabs@...>
 

Soooo I recently updated to Ham Radio deluxe V 6.5.0.1836 and now I can not get neither SDRUNO nor SDR Console to rig control my FTDX3000, SDR counsole says connected but that's it. HRD does control the rig - anyone else experiencing this? Have a work around/solution?

Re: How delete entries in V3 Scheduler ?

Tony_AD0VC
 

To delete all Active entries, first delete all entries in the temporary schedule (you did that), then click the button to copy to the active schedule. This will replace the active schedule with the blank temporary schedule.

Subject: [SDR-Radio] How delete entries in V3 Scheduler ?
 
Good day all,

I tried to use the Recording Scheduler in V3.
I followed the instructions as shown on the SDR-Radio website "Data (IQ) Scheduler".
All went fine and the various recordings went OK.
Afterwards I wanted to delete all entries in the Scheduler.
So I first deleted all entries in "Definitions" then in "Temporary Schedule" and finally wanted to delete the entries in "Active Schedule".
I do not know whether this the correct procedure but I cannot delete the entries in "Active Schedule".

Attached is a screenshot of what I cannot delete.

Can someone inform me how the entries are correctly deleted?

Thank you in advance.

73,
Koen
